Kentucky to visit top shooting guard tomorrow


John Calipari has the jet gassed up for the fall recruiting period, which begins tomorrow, and he has a super-busy schedule ahead. That schedule includes a Friday stop in Connecticut to visit Hamidou Diallo at his Putnam Science Academy, according to one Adam Zagoria.

Diallo is the No. 1 shooting guard in the class.

Hamidou Diallo
Shooting Guard | 6-4 | 170 lbs.
Queens Village, NY | Putnam Science Academy
AAU: New York Rens
ESPN No. 11 | 3 SG Top247 No. 7 | 1 SG
Rivals No. 10 | 3 SG Scout No. 10 | 1 SG

Here’s Calipari’s weekend schedule as we know it:

Friday: Hamidou Diallo (Putnam, Connecticut); Kevin Knox (Tampa, Florida); Immanuel Quickley (Bel Air, Maryland)
Saturday: Trae Young (Norman, Oklahoma)
Sunday: P.J. Washington (Dallas, Texas)

In a class with players scattered across the country and Kentucky’s need to add five or six of them, it’s going to be a very long and exhausting weekend (and fall) for John Calipari.

** UPDATE **

Apparently it will be UK assistant Tony Barbee visiting Diallo tomorrow, not Calipari. Either way, Kentucky will be in the house to see the five-star guard.
